Registered users of American Legion websites: Single sign-on is here!

Are you a registered user of American Legion web resources, such as MyLegion.org, Baseball.legion.org, Legiontown.org or Legion.org? And tired of typing in your username and password each time you access the sites? Good news – a single sign-on is here!

To get started, you must re-register and set up a new password. And confirm the response email.

A new login screen became available Dec. 31 that requires you to re-register. Members and non-members will need to do this for a single sign-on and to continue accessing the valuable information and tools provided through the following American Legion web assets:

- MyLegion.org

- Legion.org

- Legiontown.org

- Centennial.legion.org

- Burnpit.us

- Baseball.legion.org

(Note: this requirement does not currently apply to registered users of the Emblem Sales website.)

This new single sign-on is Stage 1 of a multi-stage rollout that will allow The American Legion to provide a streamlined and better user experience within its web environment – and it begins with this initial step of re-registering. Thank you for taking this first step in a series of exciting American Legion web features that are to come on MyLegion.org and Legion.org.

So let us help you get started.

To begin the re-registration process:

1. On the login screen, click the link “Register as a new user.”

2. The registration screen will appear for you to enter an email (required). Registrants are strongly urged to complete all other profile fields, including member ID (if applicable). Information provided will be kept safe and secure.

3. A new password must be created.

4. IMPORTANT: To complete the process you must confirm the response email. After you have registered, you will receive an email (please check your junk email inbox or SPAM folder if you don’t see it in your inbox) from sso@legion.org asking for account confirmation. Click the “Confirm My Account” link within two days – otherwise when you attempt to log in you will be directed to a page allowing you to resend the confirmation email.

Your questions answered:

Q: Why am I told my account no longer exists?

A: The new platform that The American Legion is moving to requires each user to have a unique email address as the username. This, in conjunction with a move from a vendor proprietary system, which required us to renew accounts for all American Legion web properties. Please note that all member information is still within MyLegion, securely and safely housed.

Q: Why should I fill out the entire profile?

A: By filling out the entire profile, especially your member ID, continued access to member-only benefits is ensured.

Q: What if I haven’t received the confirmation email after registering?

A: If you haven’t received your account confirmation email, please attempt to login. You will be taken to the Please Confirm page or click here to generate a new message for the email address used during registration. You may need to enter your email address manually if you go directly to the page.

Q: What should I do if I confirmed my account but am still having trouble logging in?

A: Please verify that your new password is correct.
